Pinnacle team 'a work in progress' in 1st 1A season
The Pinnacle Academy High School volleyball is underway for their first season as a 1A school. The JV squad is 1-1 with a win against Green River and a loss to Tinic. The Varsity team is 0-2 with losses to both Green River and Tintic.
On Sept. 10 the JV lost to Green River in five sets 25-11, 25-18, 1-15, 11- 15, 11-15. The Pinnacle Varsity was beaten in three 12-25, 16-25, 11-25.
On September 15 they traveled to Eureka to play Tintic and the JV swept the match 12-25, 16-25, 11-25. The Varsity battled for five sets before losing 25-12, 21-25, 25-18, 22-25, 12-15
The team played their first home match against Whitehorse on Tuesday Sept. 21. The varsity struggled a little with home game jitters. They lost in three 25-15, 25-6 and 25-12.
Coach Heidi Kay was a little disappointed but understood that playing in front of parents and friends seemed to hurt the team's focus a bit.
"We are a work in progress," she said after the match, "This was not our best game by a long way. It is not an easy game to learn, but we are getting it."
Then Pinnacle travels to Mountain and Monument Valley over the weekend for matches with them.
